Choosing a sweetener has never been stickier. Here’s a look at seven common ones.

  • Melanie Marino Spindler

    Not added-- all artificial sweeteners increase insulin resistance so having too much of them may cumulatively add to the development of Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Can't afford organic all the time? Here's where to splurge, and how to eat cleaner if you don't have the option.

  • Jenna Blankenship

    Why was the # of pesticides present the parameter chosen for whether or not organic is better? Wouldn't the amount or the toxicity of the pesticides present be a more worthwhile metric? Also, why weren't any organic foods tested as a control? It would be spreading a common myth to imply that foods labelled organic were farmed without pesticides, because pesticides are usually still used plentifully, many of them hazardous to human health and the environment, such as Rotenone. I enjoyed the extra tips, however!

    I'm stunned that tomatoes are not on this list.

  • Christine Tarbet

    Why squash? It has such a thick skin. I'd go with tomatoes too, Kim.

The FDA is proposing a new look to its food nutritional labels.

  • erin m

    the ingredients need to be HUGE and limited

    @erinmehaffey I agree! I wish they would also indicate if there was gluten or not. Yes they say wheat, but wheat isn't the only thing that contains gluten. Some of those scientific names I can't pronounce contain gluten as well. It's not a bad thing, overall. Just some other things to consider.

  • Leslie Collie

    It might not be perfect, but it's a good start and a big improvement!

  • Maryellen Miller

    I'd like to see the one where it explains each chemical the FDA allowed them to use, it's harmful effects AND it's GMO status.

  • Juliya Sheynman

    Needs another collumn for grams silly to have percentages in a clean line but not grams

A complete guide to yogurt.

  • Vicki Dean

    Another yogurt ingredient that can be of concern is carrageenan.

  • Janet B

    Better to buy plain yogurt and ad your own fruit and sweetener.

  • Elise Martinez

    Or make your own yogurt...

  • Siobhan Simper

    Cochineal extract is used in TONS of food, as well as dying fabric etc. It's really very safe (unless you are allergic) and natural!

  • Sun Ruled Lion

    Agreed, cochineal is natural but I would rather not eat food that needs to be dyed. Plus there things other than insects that can be used as food coloring such as beets, pomegranates, purple potatoes, etc.
